I agree with this. I like mine and will keep them, but I do like the EE fit a bit more.Finally got a chance to try on my AAUs. I’m going to do my best at an unbiased review:
- Fit is ok. Not the best, not the worst. Strictly on fit, Eric Emanuel is better (logos are another discussion)
- I don’t have much flare, but I opted for the smaller of the two sizes I ordered, making them a little more fitted.
- Like others have mentioned, the rise is a little short if you have and sort of lower half.
- Biggest complaint: the lining is a snag magnet. My lining already had snags in it out of the bag similar to another users posting, albeit not as bad. Probably fine for the leg liner, but absolutely absurd to use that silky fabric for the pocket lining. Keys will shred it in under a minute. Frankly, I don’t think these pockets will be usable after a couple wears.
Net, nice shorts. I’ll be keeping them as I like the color. Not worth $172 for made in China mesh shorts when the fit isn’t really that differentiated and can’t see the lining holding up. I’d say $89 is probably more in line with the product and quality, but if they’re selling, they’re selling.
